And PRI clearly will have learned so much from American fear mongering parties such as The Repubs, Demos and Fox news!! The bigger issue I'd like to watch unfold is the addressing of comp. imm. reform in the US and I think whichever party can get that done, will reap the benefits of Latino and so much voter support for years to come...As much as I'd like to say the Demos are closer toward getting reform done, in many ways Latinos seem invisible to them (of course Latinos are viewed as visible but unwanted by GOPers)...not sure which party is better on this issue presently..

The greatest favor we can do Mexico is to bring our troops home from their world police jobs and station them in "training camps" along our borders to stop drugs, terrorists, and illegal immigration. Next step, legalize,tax and control pot just like booze. Develop a quality product with the same requirements of the FDA for other products and make sure that the price is very competitive. Already states allowing medicinal uses are seeing the tax benefits. Mexicans are killing each other with weapons made in the US and paid for by the sale of illegal drugs. Stop crossings for drugs north and cash south and the drug cartels would be strangled. We might even catch a few terrorists in the bargain but mostly our kids would be home and out of the mess they are in and spending time with their families and their checks in the USA.

well said for the most part...There must be a more thoughtful way on illegal immigration though...
I just wish the politicos had the "cojones" as Palin would say to address meaningful immigration reform including a pathway to citizenship as even GOPers like W. Bush, McCain had previously advocated for!

FDA requirements. Really?

Little hypocritical to be calling Mexico out on human rights abuses…

We import about 80 million barrels of their oil per month, our banks launder hundreds of billions of dollars of their drug money, we have collateral damage that kills hundreds of women and children all the time in the Mideast...

The US condones and practice torture, and we have secret prisons, and we practice rendition, and we arm third world thugs to kill their own people…so the US even remotely accusing any other country of crimes against humanity, or implying war crimes does not pass the stink test…

Don't forget the weapons our country funnels to the cartels. Our lack of controls on assault weapons keeps them better armed than their own military and police.

well said on American hypocrisy!! US could go a long way toward standing up for Human Rights throughout the world simply by not buying oil from thug dictators and not arming them...
Buying 15% more oil from Canada and MEx. who are our neighbors and allies after all..would be a start..buying 15% (to start) less oil from thugs like Chavez, Amdlkjamajead in Iran, and the Saudi Royal Family could be a next step...just some ideas...

Let's put it in perspective. 26 million dollars is the amount of bribes paid in Mexico every 4 hours.

also probably true! As much as I hope American politicians will have "the cojones" to stand up for imm. reform, the Mex. govt (following Pres. Felipe Calderon's lead) must stand up against and root out govt. corruption at all levels!

" "We believe there has been progress, very significant progress, on human rights in Mexico, but as a policy decision – not a legal decision – we are going to wait on a portion of new funding because we think additional progress can be made," said Roberta Jacobson, a deputy assistant secretary for Mexico and Canada at the State Department." Seems like our own inconsistant policies create much confusion and make us look like a serpent with a forked tongue. Why mexico and not the same for Israel if we're talking about human rights?

Big freakin' deal - withhold 15% if $1.4 BILLION!!!! Like that is really going to hurt the Mexican government.

When I think of what the BILLIONS we give to other countries to bolster their corrupt governments, the BILLIONS we give away in military aid - and then those same countries criticize us and condemn us and some of the members of our own Congress applaud their comments, it makes me furious!

Use the darned money to secure our borders, use the money to help the needy in the U.S., use the money to bolster the economy of our country, use he money to repair or replace our infrastructure that is falling apart - for gosh sake, we need that money!

Those are "remesas" from Mexicans who've immigrated to the states. Not all, or even the majority, are illegals.

Is the U.S. human-rights abuses free?

Can we withhold monies now from the CIA/Military/Homeland Security for human rights abusives?

Let's just not pay Obama until he makes changes.

Logical, but nooooo . . . a case of 'what's good for the goose is (not) good for the gander'.

PS: Obama's not solely to blame for whatever . . .

not a bad idea...CIA has been (one of, if not the biggest) violators of Human Rights especially in Latin America over the last 40 years...

The CIA just gave Blackwater (now Xe) a contract for $100 MILLION and the U.S. State Department gave Blackwater a contract for $103 MILLION!

Great way to win the hearts and minds of people in the Middle East, right?

Giving a speech on Human rights after the hertiage of the Bush Torture Adm comes off kinda hypcritcal. You know do as I say and not as I do.
